Nate is holding the cam like a flower. And he's wears a ring while climbing?

Good point about the ring. I hear all emergency rooms have ring cutters (seriously).

A ring cutter in the ER won't be needed or useful if he gets that ring caught in a crack and/or falls with it stuck on something. Ring avulsion injuries are pretty gruesome.

PS Kudos for the catch, Helen!

Thanks, gunkiemike! I think I'd like the Gunk's.

Out of everything someone could zero in on, the jewelry is correct, but sheesh. I have no idea if he was wearing his ring or not, I know not to, I expect he does too, but that's not exactly part of belaying, if it isn't someone that you've agreed to do that for.

It looks like one of those silicone rings. They are safe for climbing.
